Abstract : Formal, unambiguous mathematical structures are developed for representing Markovian queueing networks and for systematically constructing a description of a continuous-parameter Markov chain model from a description of the network diagram. A formal queueing diagram notation is developed as a pictorial language. An approach to the problem decomposition and recomposition of Markovian queueing networks is presented, and applied to realistic queueing networks. (Author)
